The Town of Mt. Crested Butte would like to notify the general public and residents of Mt. CB regarding road damage to upper Cinnamon Mountain Road, just past the Anthracite Drive junction. Due to water infiltration on the road, the Town has restricted vehicle access to one lane in that section and will not allow vehicles whose weight exceeds 8,000 Ibs., including commercial vehicles. During wet or rainy conditions, there may be additional road restrictions.
The Town is in consultation with engineering professionals and is working on a solution to repair the damaged roadway and hillside drainage starting this week. During the time of work and construction, there may be some extended periods of time that will have additional road restrictions. Staff is checking the road conditions daily for safety.
Please reach out to the Community Development Department at (970) 349-6632, ext. 5 regarding any questions or concerns, and to report if you see a worsening change in roadway conditions.
